Wilson discusses injury, leaders

Three-star tight end Lucas Wilson out of Winston-Salem (N.C.) Mount Tabor hasn't played in a game this season. The 6-foot-5, 226-pounder is close to returning. Wilson is also starting to look more into recruiting as he claims a few schools stand out.
"We're seven weeks into the season and we're 3-3," he said. "I haven't played because I had a procedure to get my groin muscle back to my bone. It's pretty minor and I'll be back in three weeks."
In recruiting, Wilson has taken one visit this season.

"I went to Tennessee for the Florida game," he said. "It was good. I liked the atmosphere a lot. I had gone down for camp in June and the spring game and this visit was an unofficial. The difference was the game, just being around the atmosphere. I spent some time with the coaches too."
Wilson intends to take more visits, but hasn't even considered specific dates or places yet.
Regarding schools, three are sticking out a bit.
"There are three schools that I'm really in contact with now since other guys have committed. Those are USF, Tennessee and Air Force," he said. "I'm interested in Air Force because it's the opportunity to be a pilot, I guess.
"Tennessee is the fact football is big and the tradition there. I know the coaches and have a good relationship with them. At USF, I have a really good relationship with the coaches and like Coach Holtz."
Wilson confirmed he intends to take his officials prior to making a decision.
